Bianka Velevska - MiGoals

Bianka Velevska is the Marketing and Public Relations Coordinator for empowering stationery brand Mi Goals. Mi Goals started with an idea - to create a diary that was easy to use and would help people turn their dreams into actionable plans. Founded by Adam Jelic in 2010, he was frustrated with the lack of diaries on the market as there was nothing specific to help you focus on your goals. With this as his motivation, he decided to create his own and in 2010 Mi Goals was born. Since the very first planner was stocked in a single Melbourne bookstore, Mi Goals diaries, journals and notebooks are now sold in over 250+ retailers across Australia and New Zealand. 

More than a stationery brand, Mi GOALS is a global community of dream chasers and action takers defining their goals, living their dreams and getting shit done.

If you’re a female entrepreneur or thinking of owning your own business, this Meet Up is the perfect setting to meet other women in the same boat. This is not a networking group – we’re here to have real conversations and make real connections.

What do we mean by real? Well you know when you walk into a room and feel welcome even when you don’t know anyone? Or when you share experiences with someone and they say “me too!”? How about when you share tough times with someone and they don’t try to give you the advice to fix it but rather - they just get you. This is what happens at League of Extraordinary Women Meet Ups.




SOME RULES we’d like to point out.


1) Tickets are $20 (+booking fee), or free for League members. Now, it goes without saying that the free tickets are for League Members only, so please only select that ticket type if you are a paying League Member – League membership is $15 per month, and gives you access to free Meet Ups in addition to loads of members only content on the members portal. If you’re not a member yet then you can join via the link below, or just purchase a ticket.


2) Please only register for this event if you plan on going. I know some people will grab a free ticket and then decide last minute that they’re too lazy to go – don’t be one of these people. If you commit to something, commit to it - we want to meet you!


3) If you’ve never been to a League event, there’s a reason why we don’t use the “N” word and use the word “connecting” instead. It's because of the negative connotation of soliciting, selling and business card swapping. Bleh, no one wants to go to an event to talk to someone for 20 minutes only to realise you’re being sucked into buying some powdered thick shakes. We are here to connect authentically and honestly – share stories and experiences, learn from each other and respect each other. Magical things WILL happen and people will seek you out to buy from you when you work from an honest heart space
